COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Richer than most amber ales, 90 Shilling is smooth & deeply satisfying, with a crisp, clean Colorado taste. The name comes from the old Scottish method of naming a brewery's beer, based on original gravity and resulting tax rating.

minutemat (890) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
355ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours a warm mahogany brown, not much aroma but quite an interesting taste.. not particularly hop heavy but with a nice malty element and a little heather sweetness on the finish. Very nice indeed.

AdiBeer (614) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Aroma: light caramel and brad malts. Appearance: dark brown, small white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: light bitters continue, average-long dry finish. Overall: nice Scotch Ale, but both aroma and palate could be more pronounced. Bottle at The Fox, Haggerston.

degbert (1007) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle. Nose has a touch of perfume, roast, yeast, and smoke... nice. Pours a medium amber-red with some haze and a very smooth off-white head. Flavor is definitely Scottish ale -- the sweet spot where smoky toffee caramel and drier amber ale meet. There’s even a touch of peatiness. Finish is long, rich, and silky. New fave.

Cavie (3672) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Tap at WOB. Welcome to Texas Odell! Pours a clear reddish orange color with a tall foamy beige head. Sweet aroma with a fair presence of hops. Lightly bitter on the nose. Sweet as well. Flavor is sweet malt, light grain and leafy notes. Hoppy flavor as well, nicely balanced. This is good!

JonMoore (1810) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle - dark amber with slim off-white head. Fruity, malty caramel aroma. Same in the taste,. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth mouthfeel, at least to begin with, goes a bit thin in the finish. Not bad.

Machinari_Diem (56) - - FEB 20, 2014
Pours a thick off white head. Clear with amber color. Aroma is rich with American hops and sweet maltiness. Flavor is disappointing. Bland with slight accents of roasted malt. Mouthfeel for not match what is expected for a 90 schilling ale with a dry finish rather than rich malty sweetness.
